Integral to the maintenance of a free republic is citizen involvement in elections. In the spirit of "trust but verify" every community needs citizens who volunteer to ensure that elections are conducted in a lawful manner. As an alternative political party the Constitution Party of Georgia is positioned to assist in keeping the Secretary of State-Elections Division and Boards of Elections (whose members are appointed by the GOP and Democrat parties) accountable to their constituents by being an independent monitor.
Anyone can publicly observe elections activity. There is no preparation or training needed to observe. Observers cannot engage in campaigning or advocacy with voters nor interrupt or impede the activities of the election workers. Observers must remain in the public observation area at all times where elections activity is taking place.
Poll watchers (at the precinct polls and tabulation centers) and monitors (for audits, recounts, etc.) are trained volunteers who are credentialed by a political party and/or candidate to more closely observe election activities. They work within the area where elections activity is taking place, observing and reporting any legitimate issues of concern. They cannot interfere with the activities of elections workers, their primary task is to gather information and report.
